Palace boss Holloway: Gayle signing no risk

Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway is convinced Dwight Gayle is a Premier League goalscorer.

Gayle's former Peterborough United chairman Darragh Anthony believes the striker is a future England star.

Olly said: “Dwight is on an upward curve. It’s not too bad a gamble when he’s only 20 and he scored 20 goals last year.

“But I don’t want to build him up too much. When Ian Wright came here from non-League he ended up playing for England and being Arsenal’s top scorer. Was that a risk?

“I’ve earned my living taking risks so if Dwight Gayle’s a risk then I’m delighted I took it."
